+scoutingfamily74 Posted July 25, 2006 Share Posted July 25, 2006 We are looking to buy our first GPS within a month or two; I think we have pretty much settled on getting the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSX. The only problem I’m having is deciding on which map software to purchase with it. We do a little bit of everything, from hiking to cross country trips to fishing. I would like to get a map for hiking where it will show very detailed areas of where we are hiking. We don’t always hike in a state or national park but sometimes just pull off the side of the road and go for it. What would you suggest for hiking? Cross country trips, sometimes we just drive not knowing really where we are going but would like a software that after we get to an area we like we could punch in the address of or look up on the software for the nearest camping, restaurant, or gas station. Is there any such software to provide us with that? Now fishing would like something with lake detail I have read on some of them will show “fishing hot spots” is there one that may be better then the other? Seems that the places that sell these don’t even know much about them. Please any help that you may provide will be great! PS Anyone have a suggestion on where to get the best deals on these? I have found some good deals on Ebay, is that typically where most of you purchase them? Quote Link to comment
